[Guide] Snow Leopard on Acer Aspire 1420p

Recommended Posts

With the helps of users from this forum, I managed to install Snow Leopard to Acer Aspire 1420p and dual boot Windows 7.


What does not works:


* Though native video resolution works via bootloader configuration, QE/CI doesn't work. As a result, many programs that require QE/CI functions don't work, such as Screen Capture.

* Intel Wifi 1000. No resolution at the moment. Bought a Dell 1500 half height wifi card that has native Airport bcm43xx support out-of-the-box.

* Sleep does not work. To be accurate, sleep does work but it can't wake up the display. The workaround is not to sleep at all :lol:

* Touch screen

* 3G - Haven't tried. I use Wifi tethering to my phone.


What works:


* 32-bit native video resolution 1366x768

* Built-in webcam

* Built-in Atheros network card

* Wifi Dell 1505 wifi BCM43xx out of the box

* Bluetooth

* Audio

* Video - Youtub, Flash, QuickTime 7

* Keyboard and mouse

* Battery indicator

* Mult-card reader


I have documented the steps and it's quite long. Please visit http://www.mobiletux.com/


I am still looking for Intel GMA4500 kext to make QE/CI work.
